Eight Point Star Quilt – King

$798.00

The Eight-Point Star Quilt is an intricate star pattern that traditionally allowed a woman to showcase her needlework skills. Precision is extremely important in piecing stars for a neat finished product! Out of the hundreds of star patterns, one of the most popular is the Eight-Point Star. It includes a scalloped black border and 382 yards of hand quilting done by only one Pennsylvania Amish or Mennonite woman to ensure even stitching. On a king bed, this quilt will have 18 inches of drop per side.

Measures 114″ x 114″ long.

 

Homemade quilts combine the warmth of a bed cover with a unique story told by the quilters from Lancaster County, PA. Every homemade quilt is as unique as the family, busy mother or Amish ladies group who uses a needle and thimble to thread stitch on the quilt. Some quilts involve hundreds of hours and thousands of stitches to create a unique patchwork quilt that will last for generations.

A quilt is not only a cozy bed cover: it is also a piece of art. The artists that make our quilts select high quality vivid fabrics and organize them into an appealing masterpiece. Select from our selection of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that best matches your home design.

Though the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to make certain tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat as well as superb washing outcomes.

Just about all of our quilts are large enough to reduce the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's dimensions is different. We list the quilt's measurements along with the estimated drop for you to compare to the measurements you need. Definitely do your research ahead of purchasing!

Did you know?

The term handmade is commonly made use of to define crafts created by a craftsman as opposed to a factory. Because it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is distinct. Not all the sewing in a handcrafted quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter utilizes mechanical devices to create his craftsmanship, our seamstresses make use of numerous tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotating knife as well as sew them with each other on the sewing machine. The quilter deals with merely thimble, needle, and thread to quilt hundreds of tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as skill to develop a product uniquely for you.
